I obtained seeds from USDA/Grin,Ames Iowa in 2006.It produces multiple growing tips all loaded with male and female flowers.Extremely Productive!It was originally bred and sold by Harris Moran in CA.
It is more productive if planted 1 per hill and direct seeded.Tastes like any other yellow crookneck squash.
